  1. Free Agency Thread

    I love this mock so far. If this comes to fruition I will be pumped.
  2. Free Agency Thread

    Source!?!?
  3. Bills sign Kevin Johnson

    I assume he’s getting little guaranteed money. Could be a prove it deal. Does he fit our coverage scheme?
  4. Free Agency Thread

    Wow that’s a massive deal. Glad we stayed away. Bills are reportedly interested in Frank Gore. This makes zero sense to me. We already have two old RB’s.
  5. Free Agency Thread

    I heard on the radio that Trent Brown could be our prime target. I really hope this isn’t true. Seems like this is just a hunch by the media.
  6. Free Agency Thread

    I figure we should start a free agency thread since FA begins next week. Any rumors that you guys have seen about potential FA targets?
  7. A Very Early Look at the 2019 Offseason

    Agree with this 100%. Another weird thing about this that I read on Twitter was Antonio Brown slept with Jordan Poyer's fiancee. If true, that could have added another layer to this. Not sure how some of Poyer's close teammates and Poyer himself would have reacted to Brown joining the team.

    That would be sweet. I saw Carucci disputing Glazer’s report however. Sounds like it could be gobbledygook.
  9. A Very Early Look at the 2019 Offseason

    You mention that 99% of what is being reported by the media is crap to devalue my opinion, but you bring up a reported swap of first round picks as a point in your argument. And then you bring up Shady and Jordan Phillips as comparisons. Shady is a better teammate than Brown has and ever will be and it’s not even close. Shady had off the field issues, but it hasn’t affected his relationship with his teammates. Jordan Phillips was a guy we signed for nothing and was a cheap flier on a depth DT, the investment to add him was miniscule compared to the cost to add AB. Comparing these two to AB isn’t comparing apples to apples. I am not saying that every player needs to be a choirboy. Off the field mistakes happen. Zay Jones had an incident last year and has seemed to put this behind him. People keep saying that Beane was trying to bring in talent, but bringing in talent that doesn’t mesh with our culture isn’t wise in my opinion. Off the field issues are different than a guy who puts himself ahead of the team. Shady has had off the field issues, but has never exalted himself over his TEAM.
  10. A Very Early Look at the 2019 Offseason

    Brown is a different case though. I know not every guy in an NFL locker room is going to be a choirboy, but Brown is on another level. The guy is holding the Steelers hostage. He said teams need to play by his rules. That is some next level selfishness. I don’t mind taking chances on guys that are rough around the edges, but Brown is a different breed. I think people are falling in love with the name. This is a square peg fitting into a round hole. An aging WR asking for a record breaking deal and going from a team that consistently contended to a team that has been poorly ran for two decades. Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.
  11. A Very Early Look at the 2019 Offseason

    I am not sure how much due diligence needed to be done on this guy. If McBeane are trying to build a strong culture then the this should have been a hard pass. I am worried that they panicked and went against their beliefs. I don't think that's a good sign. Like I said, I could be reading too much into this, but I think this is a valid concern. Most people knew this wasn't going to be an overnight fix by McBeane and knew it was likely going to take 3-4 years to build a winning culture and a strong roster. I think they need to stick to what they've been doing. Teams that make big splashes and bring in high profile players tend to fail more often than not. Bringing Brown in isn't sticking to the process in my opinion.
  12. A Very Early Look at the 2019 Offseason

    With the whole trust the process and family schtick, I am really surprised we were this serious about bringing this guy in. People are giving credit to Beane about going for it and trying to add talent, but at what cost? This guy doesn't fit the culture that McBeane are building. They gutted the roster and got rid of guys like Dareus, which based off his work ethic and his contract I agree was the right move. But now they want to bring in one of the biggest cancers in the league? If I were a player I would have some serious trust issues. This trust the process motto is a bunch of garbage. I know that this may seem minor to most people, but this shows panic on Beane's part and it goes completely against what they've been trying to build the past 2-3 years. Stick to your guns and stay consistent with your plan.
  13. Antonio Brown will NOT be come a Buffalo Bill (lock it)

    Holy hell, what did I just wake up to? I am on the west coast and had to sort through all this craziness. Rapoport is such a clown. I never believe his reports until they’re confirmed by more reliable sources. So glad this isn’t happening. His personality would be a terrible fit for this organization. I am a little confused as to why McDermott and Beane would even want this guy? He doesn’t seem like a McDermott guy whatsoever. This makes me question the process a little bit.
  14. My Last Mock before the Offseason starts

    I really like this offseason. If this comes to fruition I will be happy. I am all about adding as much talent to our o line by any means necessary and your mock definitely did that. My only concern is we didn't really add a 3 tech. I think this is a big need. Also I think that people want to address every need this year, but I think we have too many holes to fill in just one offseason. I think next year is the year we can truly be playoff contenders and win 10-11 games. If we have to neglect one position of need I would choose WR. The draft and FA class don't really have a lot of legit #1 WR. I think if we add some more talent to the WR group and beef up our o line I think we can get away with waiting another year to add a true #1 WR for Josh Allen.
  15. Bills Resign DT Jordan Phillips

    Glad he's back. I think he's a great depth piece. I still think we need a 3 technique DT. I like Harrison Phillips, but I am not sold that he can be the unquestioned starter next to Star at this point. A 3 tech DT is pretty high on my list behind OL, WR, and TE. If we can get a guy like Oliver at 9, I say we go for it.
